Long ago, on raging storm waves,
My boat fell apart when the insides caved.
I drowned in the water that once held me high,
With little hope that I'd ever be dry.
For days I drifted, too broken to stir,
Anamnesis in a psychotic whir.
But then, above me, a ship sailed slow,
In search of a survivor in the peril below.
Waiting for it to pass, I closed my eyes.
I'd left Hope on my sunken ship to die.
My eyes fluttered open when I felt your gentle kiss.
New breath in my lungs, you'd saved me from this.
I'd sit on the deck and watch you steer.
The waters were calm and you were so near.
My beautiful siren boy, who steered me right,
You took my dead heart and gave it life.
Over miles of sea, you taught me to sail,
Together we voyaged, on the seas we prevailed.
Your wild eyes were always set on the waves,
So I taught you how real memories were made.
At night we'd lay and gaze at the sky,
And you'd tell me you saw the stars in my eyes.
I peered at you in the shimmery light,
And the words that killed me slipped out that night.
I craved your gaze; I soared from your touch,
I'd fallen in just a little too much.
You'd be up on the mast in the early dawn,
In search of new remnants, and I knew you were gone.
You brought more survivors onto your ship
And I began to feel my sanity slip.
In envy I drowned, losing my breath.
The waters became stormy, calling me to my death.
Desperate, I told you to let me free,
Wishing, deep down, that you'd fight for me.
But you took me to land, my supposed desire.
Now instead of water, I'll be drowned in fire.
For the time you saved me, I forever weep.
I crave your voice, your caress of my cheek.
But, my dear you are going, steering alone.
I yearn for the days that your ship was my home.
With my feet in the sand, I watch you go,
Your wild eyes fixated on the peril below.
Goodbye my love. Oh eternal goodbye.
You're leaving me here on land to die.
